Reception Entry: children start school in September after they turn four.
Reception Registration: Please complete the form below. We will request a non-refundable registration fee of £100 for each child and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis from birth. There is no assessment or interview for Reception entry. We offer up to 60 places each year (50% girls, 50% boys).
Early registration is advised to secure a place and you will be added on to our Entrance List. Current siblings, staff children and Old-Fintonians will have priority for entry to Reception. Once the Entrance List has been filled, subsequent applicants are placed on a Reserve List. Please do not be concerned if you are placed on the Reserve List, a usual Reception intake is comprised of 50/50 Entrance and Reserve list pupils.
The status of the registration lists for Reception classes (4+) is as follows:
Reception Offer Process: Places are offered 18 months prior to the year of entry. A deposit of £2,500 will be required to secure your place at Finton House and is not refundable if you decide to withdraw the place.
Occasional Vacancies (year groups outside of Reception): A few places may become available for entry into Finton for Years 1 to 5, including entry mid-year. Typically, these children will be invited to attend an individual assessment and join a class of the appropriate age for lessons, playtime and lunch over the course of a day. Owing to Covid-19, this assessment is currently taking place slightly differently, but please contact the Registrar for more information regarding the availability of places.
